Romance Review | Ryker by Sawyer Bennett

OverviewThe rugged men of the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team are winning hearts once again in another scorching novel from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett.

The stakes have never been higher for Carolina Cold Fury goalie Ryker Evans. With his contract running out, he’s got a year left to prove he’s still at the top of his game. And since his wife left him, Ryker has been balancing life as a pro-hockey star and a single parent to two daughters. Management is waiting for him to screw up. The fans are ready to pounce. Everybody’s taking dirty shots—except for the fiery redhead whose faith in Ryker gives him a fresh start.

As the league’s only female general manager, Gray Brannon has learned not to mix business with pleasure. And yet even this tough, talented career woman can’t help breaking her own rules as she gives Ryker everything she’s got. She hopes their hot streak will last forever, but with Ryker’s conniving ex plotting to reclaim her man, the pressure’s on Gray to step up and save a tender new love before it’s too late.

My Review: 5 fucking in love with Ryker stars. I have been on a hockey kick and loved the way this story turned out. I liked the heroine as much as I liked the hero! Honestly, who doesn't love a heroine that can totally stand her ground in a men's dominated field? 

Gray is brilliant, savvy, hardworking, gorgeous, and independent. I couldn't help but adore her. I respected her, too. Honestly, I couldn't find many issues with Gray and I loved that. Her and Ryker together was something awesome to watch unfold since neither realized the magnitude of what they were unleashing. 

Ryker, ah, I do love Ryker. He's a single father who had to divorce his ex-wife because she couldn't be faithful to him. He's a great father and it warmed my heart seeing how dedicated and loving he was to his girls. He's a damn good hockey goalie, a fabulous father, a giving lover, and a great man. Honestly, it was so easy to fall in love with Ryker. He made me laugh, swoon, whimper, snort, and shake my head. 

Ryker and Gray worked well together. Ryker got her like no one else did and Gray gave Ryker the kind of support he needed. Ryker understood Gray's drive to succeed in her career path and felt compared to protect her. Gray understood that sometimes love is worth the risk. The two compliment each other well and it was just such a great book to read. I was held captive throughout the entire story so it is definitely a must read in my mind.
